Appetizers don’t get much easier than these Antipasto Skewers. They are so packed with flavor, it’s like a party with each bite.
Why this recipe works
Make-ahead and super easy. That's the name of the game with these easy Antipasto Skewers. The hardest part about them is deciding what order all of the ingredients go on your cute little skewers.
And with literally no prep work other than shopping for ingredients and draining, these make-ahead snacks are one of my new faves.
Once you try them and see how quickly they disappear, you will wonder where they have been your whole life.
At least that is what happened to me and now they have earned a permanent spot in my go-to appetizer collection.
Party Food Perfection.
The sky is the limit with the options you can add to the skewers. Just make sure that they are well drained before you start.
You can get creative with how you assemble these, but here is how I pulled them together.
Step 1: Add piquant peppers to skewer.
Step 2: Cut pickled asparagus and add to skewer.
Step 3: Fold salami in quarters and thread onto skewer.
Step 4: Add marinated Artichoke (make sure they are well drained.)
Step 5: Finish with a kalamata olive (I like to get mine at the deli so they are nice and plump)
For an extra splash of flavor, drizzle with the marinade from the mozzarella balls right before serving.
